Viña Cobos Malbec Felino 2011
A deeply red color with intense violet shades, introduces aromas of red berries, floral notes and spices leading to very pure and fresh flavors of raspberries and ripe plums. In mouth it is a velvety and refreshing malbec due to its’ right acidity. It shows a touch of complexity given by the oak as well as rounded tannins that certainly create a very pleasant finish.

A Malbec wine from Mendoza in Argentina. 2011 Vina Cobos Malbec El Felino 750ml
Spice and game notes mark this dark yet racy red, which features a core of spicy blackberry, kirsch and raspberry notes on the broad finish. Drink now.
Bright ruby-red. Aromas of crushed blackberry leather tree bark and dark chocolate reminded me a bit of mourvedre. Juicy moderately sweet and intense with noteworthy verve to its intense blackberry and black cherry flavors. Finishes with lovely floral lift and suave tannins. Stephen Tanzers IWC.

The 2011 Felino Malbec was picked from March 28 until May 3 from vineyards in Lujan de Cuyo, Maipu and Uco Valley, with malolactic fermentation in barrel and eight months in French and American oak, of which 20% is new. The bouquet offers much more delineation than the Merlot, with bright red currant and iodine notes, later joined by scents of crushed violet. The palate is full-bodied with dense, slightly aggressive tannins. There is a core of crisp black fruit with a saline finish that, again, feels a little brutish in the mouth. With bottle age, the edges will be rounded off, but it is severe and uncompromising at the moment. Drink now–2018.
